A $25K fundraising campaign has been launched by co-workers of Kevin Wagner, a physical therapist at Train Boston in Wellesley whose family will be displaced from its Beverly, Mass., home until at least mid-2015 following a fire at the dwelling last week.
While no one was hurt during the 1-alarm blaze, Wagner, his wife and 4 kids are looking to rent a home in Beverly while their house is being made live-able.
The crowdfunding effort is being facilitated via DreamFund.com, which is also based in Wellesley.
The plea reads in part: “This is devastating at any time, but one week before Christmas, with 4 young children makes it that much harder. They lost everything to the fire along with smoke and soot damage.”
